Exploring innovative technologies to achieve a low carbon future/support the decarbonization of the global economy.
Hydrogen can be used as fuel in the transport sector, or heat generation in industrial, residential, and commercial sectors, as well as power generation. Currently it is neither as cheap and convenient as coal or natural gas nor as versatile as electricity. Hydrogen is an energy carrier, not an energy source; it needs energy from other sources to produce it. Hydrogen production typically comes from unabated hydrocarbons, but deployment of carbon capture and storage and water electrolysis to produce hydrogen from renewables could create an economic, low-carbon option in the future.
The IHS Markit Hydrogen and Renewable Gas Forum covers the three regional key market areas of hydrogen as an energy carrier—Europe, California, and mainland China and will expand to other markets in the future, including Japan and South Korea by the end of 2020.
